I'm pleased to learn my story "Living the Dream (Except for One Thing)" has been accepted for the "Dream" anthology from the Pikes Peak Writers. See the announcement here: https://pikespeakwriters.com/ppw-anthology/
Publication date is expected to be early April, with the cover reveal in a few weeks. Here is the back cover blurb:
They are manifold – resolving subliminal mysteries and creating chaos.
Our dreams are delightful and bold.
Some are lucid, cyclical, and idealistic. They spawn yearning for our past – and foretell our futures.
Do you crave answers or adventure?
Step through the veil.
Discover the primordial wisdom of the universe, and the shadows of our dreams.
My story features an implanted personal-assistant AI whose dream is to serve his client in every way possible. However, when his client asks him to research ways to kill his wife, he must struggle with his need to please his client while satisfying his strict ethical programming.

PPW is dedicated to providing quality education for writers, year-round. Beyond the annual conference, PPW hosts free and low-cost events.
